E-book Working Group

Background & History

The Orbis Cascade Alliance's E-book Program was launched as a pilot in July 2011. Initially the E-book Working Group was established as a subset of the Shared Content Team to provide leadership and oversight for the program. Since then, it has became a sustained part of the consortium. The E-book Standing Group (ESG) operates under the auspices of the Shared Content & Technical Services (SCTS) Team.

ESG members examine all components of the e-book program, such as business and access models, usage statistics, and purchasing patterns. They use this information to work effectively with content partners to maximize the benefit of the program to Alliance members.
